Protect Yellowstone buffalo from hunting season

We’ve been given no other choice but to seek Endangered Species Act protection for the Yellowstone buffalo (“Many ideas floated over Yellowstone park bison,” Web, Dec. 14). This important action has been taken by the Buffalo Field Campaign and Western Watersheds Project.

Hill squabbles cost Americans — again

“Dereliction of duty” and “a pox on both their houses” are the phrases that come to mind in reviewing the most recent actions of tragic comedy in what we call Congress (“Leadership courts centrist support for $1.1T spending bill as shutdown looms,” Web, Dec. 10).

Fanning racial flames

Are various political and religious radicals in the United States deliberately increasing racial tensions and mistrust in order to convince the poorly informed that they need these radical leaders for protection? I believe so, and I think those willing to remove their politically correct blinders will see the evidence, too.

Iran nuclear cheating calls for more missile defense

Iran is once again showing the world its leaders can’t be trusted (“U.S. condemns Iran’s detention of Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian,” Web, Dec. 7). They jail American journalists for no reason. And now they are allegedly cheating on the interim nuclear sanctions agreement that recently extended peace talks.

Information-leaking double standard

Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is sitting in prison for letting out secrets that damaged our nation's safety. National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden is living in self-imposed exile in Russia for letting out secrets that damaged our nation's security. Yet Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, is a hero to the liberal news media for letting out secrets that could damage our nation's security and cause harm to Americans here and abroad.

Keeping U.S. safe, free has costs

The world would be such a grand place if all children had something to eat, no one lied or cheated, courtesy was the rule and we all loved one another. The reality, however, is that there are some really evil people out there who could not care less about others and would just as soon kill some people as look at them.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Report release endangers U.S.

As Americans we should be greatly outraged to learn that the Obama administration has released a report on the CIA's interrogation techniques in the years following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks ("U.S. prepares for security risks from torture report," Web, Dec. 8). We have to ask ourselves on whose side the president of the United States stands.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Ferguson destroyed itself

I am not sure about the rest of America, but I have had enough of Ferguson, Missouri. You can blame the recent riots across our country and the continued sensationalism of the Ferguson riot on the news media, be it TV, print or Internet, along with the Rev. Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan and their ilk. Rev. Sharpton and Mr. Farrakhan should be arrested and charged for inciting this riot; they, along with Attorney Gen. Eric Holder and a racially divisive president, continue to incite violence. We have laws on the books, but our 'community organizer' turned his head until the rioting was over, then convened a summit at the White House to discuss how it could have taken place.

Wage raise hurts workers

Much of America, especially the black community, is being hurt by our nation's dire economic situation. This follows the very high hopes this community had during the beginning of 2009 when President Obama took office. Black wealth has declined since 2009 while the black poverty rate has risen. Overall black unemployment is tragically high and youth unemployment is an astronomical 36.8 percent. This 36.8 percent does not count the many who have given up hope and left the labor market altogether.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Remembering Barry's contributions

In recalling the long and storied political career of late D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, nearly every obituary and news account has noted that he owed his political fortunes to the District's poorest constituents. The implication is that he was the beneficiary of blind loyalty from those too unsophisticated to grasp the gravity of his personal troubles.

Brown’s bad choices led to death

As a black mother of three young adult sons, I am appalled by the violence, looting and angry behavior of those rioting in Ferguson, Missouri. I sympathize with the family of Michael Brown and am saddened that a mother and father have lost their son.
